Pastoral Prayer: Epiphany 6

Here’s a pastoral prayer inspired by the suggested scripture readings for Epiphany 6A.  It was written by Terri.

Pastoral Prayer: Epiphany 6A
(inspired by Psalm 119: 1-8, 1 Corinthians 3: 1-9)

Loving God, we seek to follow your desire
And walk in your ways
To observe your commandment
Love God, love self, love others

Bless, O God, this land and
All the lands of the earth
Fill the minds and hearts
Of leaders with wisdom

As your servants may we labor
For Your purposes, building
Gardening, watering,
Reconciling, growing – peace

May we work together
Sister and brother, brother
And sister, as God’s field
God’s gift to you, to me

Loving God, we seek to follow your desire
And walk in your ways
To observe your commandments
Love God, love self, love others
Amen.
